During the consultation we will do a brief assessment with your dog, discuss training options and based on your needs, recommend a plan of action for you and your dog. Note: this one-time consultation, is not a training session. A consultation is NOT a prerequisite for attending our Puppy class or Obedience Bootcamp Level 1 class. 

PLEASE READ: The private telephone consultation or private behavioural consultation with Head Trainer Jill Henry, is geared for adult dogs or young adult dogs over the age of 7 months with serious behavioural challenges. IMPORTANT: If you have a young puppy (under the age of 6 months), and are interested in interviewing the trainer or asking puppy related questions, such as potty training, how to stop biting, nipping, digging and other puppy behaviours. OR, if you have an adult dog that doesn’t necessarily have behavioural problems, but you would like to do some training and don’t know which class to start with. We suggest, instead of booking a behavioural consultation, please do one of the following: 1. Call 1-844-900-3647 Ext. 2 and leave us a voicemail to request a call back.

The training method that will be used in this class is called Marker Training. 

What is marker (or clicker) training? In a nutshell, it’s an animal training method based on behavioural psychology that relies on marking desirable behaviour and rewarding it. This black and white method of communication is based on positive reinforcement and will revolutionize the way that you train your dog.  This class will teach you about the power of training your dog with food and will focus on building the dog/handler relationship through engagement and motivation. During the class you will learn the basic concepts of luring, leash pressure and shaping of behaviours. We will also cover classical/operant conditioning and discuss how to build motivation in your dog through productive play. Marker training can be used to train any behaviour, from basic obedience and tricks to behavioural modification. There are no prerequisites for this class. It is recommended that you bring treats, a food pouch, leash and a clicker for your dog. The class has a limit of 6 dogs. Please book online now to reserve your spot.

Testimonials

Charlotte

When I first brought home my new puppy, she was terrified of everyone and everything. I could not get through to her at all – she’d just shut down and shiver. Thanks to miracle workers Jill and Melissa, just a few weeks of training have changed her into a happy bouncy little dog. She still has a way to go but the results after puppy kindergarten classes are really quite remarkable. Thank you so much!!!

Tyler & Murphy

Only place I go for grooming! Kori is an absolute 🌟! Murphy (my 🐕) absolutely loves her. He comes back looking stunning and smelling amazing haha. He’s 80lbs.. and for 60$.. absolute best deal available. Highly highly recommend!! PLUS.. if you need and obedience.. that’s on site too!!

Obedience Unleashed IS the place to take your pup, reactive, or just simply in-obedient dog to.
